2015 SYFA Club Membership / ERSDA Team Registration
Monday 12 January 2015 - 00:00:00 in General

2015 SYFA Club Membership / ERSDA Team Registration
Key Dates:-
SYFA League registration - completed prior to Xmas.
SYFA Club registration (as per below e-mail from Myra) - Monday, 12th January onwards.
ERSDA Team registration - Monday, 5th January onwards (for clubs already SYFA registered from 2014 and have an SYFA ID Number).
Club/Team registration evening - Monday, 26th January (venue to be confirmed).
Deadline for registration/inclusion in Week 1 fixtures - Saturday, 14th February (to give time for fixtures secretaries to complete their work).
Proposed In-service day (issue of Week 1 fixtures) - Saturday, 21st February (to be confirmed by John Gervaise).
Season start - Saturday, 28th February.
As per below, the SYFA club registration for 2015 for this age group can commence from next Monday. Please note the procedure below and the change from last year in that it is now an offence for any club/team to be given fixtures if they are not SYFA/ERSDA registered. This change was mentioned in the minutes of the AGM sent to all coaches and posted on the website. Therefore, it is all the more important that clubs register in good time - NO REGISTRATION, NO FIXTURES. PERIOD.
SYFA Club Registration (excluding 2003's)
The required forms should be downloaded from the SYFA website and completed accordingly. Note that SYFA require a minimum for each club at an age group of coaches who are listed as the club secretary, a child protection officer and a first aider (SYFA approved courses only). Any other coaches can be listed as officials.
Once completed, all the forms plus the appropriate cheque (made out to SYFA) plus an SAE should be sent to me, Bob MacDonald, ERSDA Secretary for signature and passing on to Hampden. Alternatively, you can hand deliver to the address below or attend the registration evening.
Once completed and passed to Hampden, you will receive a confirmation e-mail from Hampden stating that your club is registered. PLEASE PASS ON THIS E-MAIL TO ME. This e-mail will be proof that you are fully registered and eligible to be included in the fixtures. Without this e-mail, you will not be eligible to start the season with ERSDA. As stated above, there will be no exceptions as the league can now be fined if fixtures are issued to unregistered clubs - previously this had been a warning only to the league.
ERSDA Team Registration (all age groups 2008 to 2003)
Please complete the  ERSDA registration form (in the document section of the website), one for each team. If your club at this age group has already registered with SYFA in 2014 and you know your SYFA ID number then the ERSDA forms can be completed as soon as you can. If you are a new club at this age group you will have to wait until you know your SYFA ID number. Most, if not all of you, will know your ID number from previous registrations.
I will record your ERSDA registrations along with the SYFA registration to confirm your eligibility to be included in the fixtures.
It is therefore important that clubs register as soon as possible with SYFA and teams are registered with ERSDA.

2014 AGM
Wednesday 17 December 2014 - 00:00:00 in General

2014 AGM
The minutes relating to the ERSDA AGM held on Monday, 1st December are now on the website but please note the following:-

a) following David White's resignation as ERSDA President which takes effect on March 1st, 2015, no nominations were received prior to the AGM nor was anyone proposed at the meeting. Therefore, the position of President is still open. Anyone wishing to take up the position should contact myself or any of the committee members. Note that David will continue to be on the committee for the moment as Vice President.

b) I will issue an e-mail shortly following the registration of the league with the SYFA (in progress) stating when clubs can start registering with the SYFA and their teams with ERSDA for 2015. Note that the SYFA will now impose a fine if any unregistered clubs are included in fixtures. Therefore, it is important that clubs register in good time to be included in ERSDA league fixtures (see minutes for details). I will include the details again with my e-mail on registration mentioned above.
NB - SYFA registration for 2015 does not affect the 2003's who are registered up to June 2015 but still require to register their teams with ERSDA for March to June 2015.
Bob MacDonald
ERSDA Secretary

Parking in Dubbs Road,Barrhead
The following email was recieved today from East Renfrewshire Council,


I’m not sure if you’re familiar with the above private road,however it runs runs adjacent to the Cowan park in Barrhead.  Unfortunately we’ve received a complaint from the land owner regarding people parking in this vicinity in particular on Saturday mornings when ERSDA 7’s is taking place.
As such please can you put on the ersda website that people are not allowed to park on this road as well as highlighting this issue to all coaches who use this facility and ask them to relay this information to all parents of players.

Dubbs Road is highlighted in yellow below.
